About me
I am an expert in translation and communication. I specialise in interpreting and translating various types of contents to adapt them to the target audience's language and culture. I believe that translation and interpretation are not only about changing words for their closest equivalents in a different language. Rather, it's both and art and a science, which requires thorough knowledge and skills to convey the intent, tone, and meaning given to the text by the original author.


I have always been surrounded by different languages. Throughout most of my childhood, I spoke English at school and Spanish at home, while using the afternoons to learn French at a language school. Since I have spent significant parts of my life living in various parts of South America, North America, and Europe, I am aware of the barriers that culture, in addition to language, place on communications. My unique set of experiences allows me to understand different cultures and adapt contents to their requirements and expectations, quickly and efficiently, without sacrificing quality. I believe that the performance of these services, within a framework of integrity that seeks to bridge cultural differences in order to bring people closer together, is the true craft of the translator.
